Comments on how to fix transmission on a Lexus RX 450h:
Nevin
Did mine (also RX450H 2010) using this video, took only about 45 min too. Very easy. Thank you so much for providing this. The location of the bolts are easy to find. It only drained about 4 quarts of lubricants.

Here is my experience with the transmission oil change: The video here is excellent but I hear people say how much oil we have to add and on some sites it says measure how much you drain and add the same amount. In some other sites it says fill it until it overflows, put the filler plug back on and drive it until it's warm, remove the filler plug and check again if it needs some more. Here is the easy way I do it and I do it only once without removing the plug again. You need 4 quart + 1 quart total(I have seen three RX450H using that amount of oil). You can't add this amount through the filler hole on the right side of cv joint because it overflows. You add this amount by removing the plug on the left side of CV join after removing the plastic cover that is held in place by 2 10mm bolt. It's located on the top of the transmission on the same side as the filler plug but the other side of the CV joint. Add this amount through that hole and you are done. Disclaimer: This is the way I do it and works for me. It's not a factory instruction. Do not forget to drain first by following the instruction in this video.

Lets keep in mind the transmission oil capacity is apx 7 quarts, so basically what you did is only change 1.4 out of the 7 quarts in the transmission. If you wanted to flush the entire thing, you would have to do this 8 or 10 times running the car in between changes, measuring what comes out and putting back exactly the same amount. These transmissions are super sensitive to transmission oil levels so I would recommend leveling it the proper way. And for that you need more tools like Toyota Techstream or a scan guage to measure the temperature.

Are you sure concerning the filling side?? The fill plug is above the drain plug on the left of the front wheel rotor?!?

No jackstands but at least you had a tire underneath the front wheel rotor. Maybe the stand was out of the view?
